Today I am truly happy. These last couple of weeks have brought me such incredible joy! I am so excited to tell you about meeting your cousin Dylan for the first time. She was born Tuesday October 7. That day, after spending time with his first born daughter, uncle Conor invited me to the hospital to meet his new baby girl. I got in my car and drove as fast as I could (keeping in mind that I will be a mommy soon, and I needed to survive the ride) to the hospital. I followed the pink and blue baby footprints placed on the hallway floor to the maternity ward. When I got to Dylan’s room I entered slowly. I wanted to take everything in at that moment. My curiosity and sheer admiration for this sweet woman who is able to have children was at its peek. My infertility has created a deep need to try to relate to this beautiful experience through others.
I first saw uncle Conor, the proud new dad. Aunt Sierra, having just given birth, looked like a beautiful angel. I didn’t know it was possible to look so pretty after bringing a child into this world! Then I saw precious little Dylan. Like all of your other cousins, she is perfect. I felt like I was witnessing a miracle; a new little soul joined our family, and I couldn’t have been happier. The love that filled that little hospital room was palpable. Since her birth I have been able to hold her close and tell her that I love her. When I tell her that she has a cousin coming her way soon, an overwhelming feeling of love and warmth swallows me whole. I can’t wait for you two to meet! You will be very close in age and, i’m sure, be wonderful friends. The bond between cousins is so strong and precious!
My sweet little nugget, I know we will be meeting soon! I can feel it. I know that our little family is meant to be. I am so happy with my life, knowing you are to be mine!
We are getting so close to bringing you home! We have met so many amazing people on our path who are trying to help us get to you. You are already so loved!
